REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  3 of 5 [Rate It]

Review rate : B+

“..will inspire many a socioeconomic academic treatise. It's a rare Hollywood beast, and a Nolan specialty..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]
Review rate : B

“..the strong middle and ending roar past these problems and leave things feeling nicely complete..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..the movie may not top The Avengers at the worldwide box office, but it is a far, far better thing - maybe the best, most troubling, assured and enthralling of all the superhero movies..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..notable for many things-thrilling chases, supercool vehicles, majestic vistas, an epic scale that hasn't been achieved since "The Lord of the Rings," a redemptive climax that brings an end, more or less, to a complex saga..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
3.5 of 4

“..it is visually bold and masterfully paced..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]
4 of 4

“..is not just the summer's grandest blockbuster, but also one of the year's best movies..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
4 of 4

“..imposingly dark and hugely entertaining..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..hugely ambitious action-drama nonetheless retains the moral urgency and serious-minded pulp instincts that have made the Warners franchise a beacon of integrity in an increasingly comicbook-driven Hollywood universe. Global B.O. domination awaits..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
4 of 5

“..brings the Batman story to a close in enormous, satisfying fashion, not just on the huge scale it builds for itself, but on a human level as well..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..although The Dark Knight Rises ends in a furious finale of chaos, carnage, and cataclysm, the filmmaker has brought things to a satisfying closure..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..a truly grand finale raises Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy to the peak of big-screen comic book adaptations..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..a satisfying saga of revolution and redemption that ends the tale on a note of thunder..”
by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]
4 of 5

“..a pretty well-sustained piece of epic moviemaking..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
3.5 of 4

“..a movie this potent and provocative is well worth the battle..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..a fitting conclusion to an artful trilogy, culminating with satisfying dazzle, despite some notable flaws..”

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
